What the hell did everyone expect?

I go to Transformers to see Megan Fox look good and giant robots fight. I went to Battle: LA to see the American military and aliens shoot and blow each other up.

A lot of people seem to think this was supposed to be some kind of District 9 movie. Sure, if you evaluate it on the same scale as District 9, it sucks. But if you just wanted to see an awesome action movie, this is the movie for you.

Yes, there was no character development. Yes, the plot is a zillion years old. So what? I wasn't looking for those things. Now and then, it's nice to go see a movie with mindless action. 100% of this movie was mindless action. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy it. Compare it to a movie like The Losers or A-Team where the movie tries to build up some characters and an original plot and fail miserably.

I would also like to add that there are some nice original points to this movie. For once, the aliens are not infallible. I get pretty tired of the oh-lawd-we-hit-them-with-nukes-and-didn't-kill-one type of alien movie popularized by Independence Day. There is no magic bullet in this movie, the aliens die from bullets, and you have to take out the command and control center to do serious damage (hey, just like in a conventional land war!). I also thought this movie was a decent depiction of a realistic military response to an alien attack. Everyone mobilizes, surrounds the landing zone, and combat ensues when they are attacked. Pretty simple.

I also see complaints about camera style. I honestly didn't even notice. It didn't seem any worse than, say, Black Hawk Down.

So I give this movie 8/10 on my action movie scale. If you were planning on evaluating it on the thoughtful-work-of-art scale, you must not have seen any of the trailers.

It was like watching a video game demo

This is the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. And it been 7 years since I suffered through this atrocity in theatres and to this day I still ain't seen nothing worse than this garbage, and there have been a lot of awful movies this decade. The whole movie is stuff blowing up and muscle men cheering. It was like watching a video game play itself, except even your average video game has more plot than this. Nothing happened. Just stuff blowing up. You wanna watch stuff blow up, play some video games, so at least you can have the joy of making the stuff blow up.

Been there, done that, got the t shirt

A rag tag bunch of marines from different teams join together to battle the aliens who have invaded California to steal the water from our oceans. The whole alien invasion genre has gotten old waaay before this movie reared its head. From Independence Day and its sequel, to Cloverfield, to Pacific Rim, to Battleship and a million others, theyre all pretty much the same. Introduce characters, insert a few dysfunctional ones, eveeuthings fine until aliens invade *insert city here* . Battles and destruction ensue, insert a few heroic deaths, the sense of defeat for the human race, insert a inspirational speech, then one final stand for mankind that ends with the aliens defeated. Ehhh. It all gets to be quite boring
